Dag

Series Three.
Episode one.
Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

Graphic with text:
So you do love me a little!
Maybe, or else..”

Dag and Malin: (now they are discussing cases at the end of the day)
Dag:
“Even swans split up when they’re feeling bored”
Malin:
“Experiencing love has made you meaner!”

Ernst quotes the Hemingway code.

Earlier.  Eva is already moaning like a wife.

Woman to Dag:
“I’ve become this function  that nobody notices.
“I do all this work, nobody notices”
“It makes me feel worthless..”
Dag:
“What is the positive?”

Really tired husband to his wife:
“You always think you know everything to do with the kids”.
“You shout at me all the time”
 Dag:
“I’m going to do something I never usually do..”

Ah! (Malin Screams)
Dag to his clients:
“It’s OK, my secretary is writing an epic and sometimes her head explodes”

Dag to Malin:
“Vidkin Quisling?”
Malin:
“He keeps taking on different  roles, creeping into the story..”

Dag to Eva:
“Christmas in July? Is it even legal?”

****

Episode Two.
Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

Graphic and text:
The nicest gift  I could give her was to blame me for everything.

I hadn’t wanted to say so earlier because it sounds mean but Eva is a bit of a basket case.  Get a grip woman.

Oh no.  I did wonder about Trine.

Episode Three.
Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

Benedikt to Dag:
“Into the inner sanctum..”

Benedikt:
“I have absolutely nothing..”
Dag:
“So OK, on the bright side, it couldn’t possibly get any worse!”

Graphic with text:
We can thank animals for some of our best memories.

So that chicken is enormous.

Eva:
How many dead animals have passed through here?”
She is such a misery guts.

Dag to Benedkit:
“Can you take it easy,, I want this to  go well..”
“We’ve been going through a rough patch..”

Then:
Knock, knock.  Just who could this be a come a-knocking?
Benedikt to the visitor: (Juanita)
“It’s Norwegian liquor, you may not be used to..”
Her:
“Yes, please!”

Dag to his guests:
“Time for some more wine..”

So.  A big moment there.  For Dag.
And then the door bell rings.

(All) Much as I predicted.  And expected.

Dag to Marianne:
“So is that Oompa Loompa your guru now?”

So Marianne’s boyfriend is well funny.

And it’s all going down.
A dark ballad ensues.

Episode Four.
Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

It’s the morning after the night before.

Graphic with text:
Everything in life is difficult, being old, being young.

Ernst to Dag:
“He with the most soul and intelligence lives the greatest tragedies.”
He continues:
“Who said that?”
Dag:
“Nietzsche.”
Ernst:
“It looks like life has declared war on you..”

A sad ballad, sombre sounding, ensues.

Eva to Dag:
“Bla bla bla..but I want you to be sure..
Dag:
“Sure?”
Her:
“Not that you know what you want..”
Yawn.

Eva continues:
“I don’t feel that you have lived the same as me..”
“You don’t know how to relate to me, you have no frame of reference..”
“For me/mei”
Like I said: Bla Bla Bla.

Dag pauses:
Dag;
I don’t care where you came from.”
Her:
“I want you to chose us, me and Leon when you have seen the alternative..”
Dag:
“This is insane”.
Yep.

Eva:
“I don’t want you to blame me and Leon in ten years time..”
Dag:
“I was never afraid of missing out on anything..”
“Before I met you.”
(Ah)
Eva:
“Have fun”..

Dag to Benedikt:
“Someone’s gonna regret handing Adam that apple..”
